Peter Clark – Dog Collages

10 Aug

Old maps, love letters, stamps, playing cards, match boxes, rosettes, buttons and labels, all form the starting point of Peter Clark‘s innovative and often humorous paper collages.  Clark undertakes scavenger trips to antique fairs, markets and second hand stores to find the right objects to inspire him.

Peter uses a comprehensive collection of found papers as his palette which are coloured, patterned or textured by their printed, written or worn surfaces, with this media he ‘paints’ his collages. He shades with density of print and creates substance and movement with lines plucked from old maps or manuscripts.

The book Paperwork by Peter Clark and Matthew Sturgis is now available on his website. Please click on bookcover for more information.

And dont forget to check out Peter’s website to see all of his other great creations.
